    Not only do we need to know what Motherboard you have (yes mobo means motherboard) but to get recommendation's you should post what you need it for (really..)

    Well you still didn't post the exact model ID of your Motherboard, what you posted is... well..... useless. anyway if you have 2 PCI-e Slots where you can plug in your Card, you can use 2.. but its either Crossfire or SLI (Ati or Nvidia) depending on the mobo..

    You probably do not need 2 Cards really... just because there might be a option for it doesnt mean you should use it.

    Upgrading the video card would be very much preferable. Also that memory available isn't on the graphics card, its the total amount of the graphics card and available system mem for textures etc. Going by your RAM amount and the amount claimed, you have a 1GB video card. In other words, the value reported by dxdiag etc is pretty useless. I know I don't have a 4gb video card! (its a 2gb).
